Weren't you at a 13.5 before? What did you change? Or if I'm way off base, answer the mod question?
Congrats on the 12's BTW. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

If that's the case, which I'm thinking it is, only 2nd APR kit I've seen in the 12's other than Nick's old car. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I think "little p" has gone 12s in his Stage 3...I had 13.0 last weekend with a 6-speed.
Good times http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: New Track Times (wolfsburg2)

I have to figure out why my traps are so low, not sure if it was weather related or not.
Also still getting used to the new clutch and launching @ 5,500 - 6,000 rpm was kinda tricky
I was used to launching @ 3,800 rpm before
When you launch that high and hook up, red line comes up on you quickly.
The first 2 runs I paniced when I saw the needle jump to red so fast and shifted too soon.
The last 2 runs I actually bounced of the rive limiter and bogged between shifts.
Next time I will start at 4 - 4.5k rpm and up to find the sweet spot.
Like I said I'm still learning, just have to listen to Tim
